A Lexington man said he saw Davidson County Animal Shelter employees laugh as they put a mother cat, her kitten and a raccoon into the same compartment of the shelter's gas chamber in 2009 and let them fight before they were euthanized.

Paul Carawan said he will tell his story to the county commissioners tonight at a meeting at which animal advocates are asking the Davidson County Sheriff's Office, which runs the shelter, to switch to lethal injection as a more humane form of euthanasia.
